Lack of doctors becoming a crisis

"I’ve tried other clinics in the Medical Building to see if any clinic is accepting new patients. They all said no."

I need a doctor like many other members of the Selkirk Family Medicine clinic, which is closing its doors mid-December 2015. I’ve tried other clinics in the Medical Building to see if any clinic is accepting new patients.

They all said no. I tried the clinic at the mall and they said to try again in a month’s time. Rossland and Fruitvale are not taking new patients either.

I’m feeling very vulnerable facing this senior’s situation.

This is a beautiful place to live with excellent schools, the regional hospital, attractive parks and super recreational facilities. It’s hard to understand why it’s difficult to find a doctor who’s accepting new patients.

For many of us, this is a crisis.
